Government & Military Testing
Trace Analytics, LLC – the leading compressed air testing laboratory since 1989
Compressed Air Testing for Government
Trace Analytics proudly provides compressed air testing for all branches of the United States military and government, in addition to international governing bodies like the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense (MOD) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
Whether you’re using compressed air for diving, firefighting, aviation, or law enforcement, we can test to the specifications you need and help ensure the safety of the air you breathe.
Our AirCheck✓™ Kit is designed for sampling high-pressure air compressors or storage systems quickly and efficiently. The small, portable kit makes taking a sample convenient and easy to use on the go, and our lightweight sampling media makes shipment of the sample simple and cost-effective.
